The mathematician divulged: ‘I can only speak for myself but if I had seen on paper that I would have ended up with a ballroom dancer from Russia – we didn’t even speak the same language growing up, I liked football and maths – it doesn’t really work.’

She continued: ‘But I guess it’s about personality and we just found we get on really well and we have a good relationship.’

Rachel went on: ‘He didn’t go to uni, we didn’t watch any of the same programmes but were we have our differences…It’s interesting. You don’t need to like the same stuff.’

Soon after her stint on the BBC talent show, Rachel split from university beau husband Jamie Gilbert. They had been married for just 16 months.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, the Oxford graduate shared she’s not quite ready to become a mother yet.

‘All my friends are getting pregnant at the moment. That’s good for them, but it’s currently not on my radar,’ she said in an exclusive interview in today’s Mail on Sunday Event magazine.
